Wedding Card

Hello, this card is for my step-brother who is getting married in September. It is based on a card that unfortunately, I now can't seem to find! So, thank you to whoever made the original.

It's a very simple design but extremely effective.
I love it - hope the bride & groom do too! Let me know what you think.

Thanks for buzzin by, Donna x

Last 3 Birthday cards

Well, here are the final 3 cards from my selection of 10 for a friend.

The first 2 cards are made using Nikki stamps from Ladybug Crafts Ink. I love these stamps.

Close up of lovely Nikki.

Simple layering and a few gems along with a die cut strip add interest to this card.

This is my attempt at making a card without a stamp. I don't do too many of them but I think this turned out OK.

Even more Birthday cards!

Evening bloggers. Here are the next 3 cards.

My good friend Laura gave me this die cut shape a while ago and I based this card around it (being purple!)
I get a lot of inspiration from Julie's blog. Her cards are amazing and are very much CAS which is my preferred style.

 This card is made using some simple strips of green card with some small flower outline stickers, a simple sentiment sticker and some ribbon.

 This card is suitable for a male and, again, is very simple. The cat stamp is coloured with Promarkers as usual and was matted onto some dotty blue and white paper. A little white ribbon adds a little interest but is not too girly :)

I have just 3 cards left now which I will post tomorrow.

More Birthday cards

Hi there, here are 2 more of the 10 mixed cards I made for a friend.

This 1st one is almost copied completely from a card in an old card magazine that I was flippin through. The stamps were free on the cover and I coloured them with Promarkers.

This 2nd one is quite simple again - I do love the more simple looking cards. This is an Anya stamp coloured with Promarkers. A little bit of ribbon from my stash and a couple of gems finish this card perfectly - I think so anyway!

Another 2 tomorrow. Thanks for buzzin by, Donna x

Birthday cards

These cards are for a friend who asked me to do a selection of 10, mainly female birthday cards. These are the first 2 and I'll post 2 a day over the next few days.

These cards are very simple and are both made with a pearlised blank card base with just a few little bits added and a sentiment stamped with Stazon ink.

I love the CAS style - I hope my friend does too!!

Baby Boy

Hello all. Sorry I've not been around for a while! I'm off work for the summer hols but I only get 4 weeks this year and I've been making the most of them!

I've completely gone from one extreme to the other though and I've made 11 ... yes 11!! cards today. This is the baby boy card for one of my bestest friends ever who gave birth last week to her first baby. Seems wierd to think of her having her first and my youngest being 12!! And she's only 6 months younger than me! We all do it our own way though eh??!

I've used my FF baby stamp which I love and some cute paper from my local craft shop. A few teeny gems in the corners and the sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs.

The other 10 cards I've made today, I will post during the week.

P.S. I changed my profile pic too cos I got my hair cut!!

No card!

Evening all - sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been mad busy what with weddings, babies and visiting family! Good job I'm off work at the moment!

This is the gorgeous bride with her husband whose cards I made in the previous posts. They both loved both the cards I made (cos I gave them both of them) and I have already been requested to make anniversary cards for next year lol

The wedding and reception were both amazing. My husband and I stayed over and our room was upgraded - lucky us :)) The reception was at The Ringwood Hall Hotel in Chesterfield. The place is fantastic and the staff were fabulous.

One of my best friends had a little boy last week so I will be making a card soon, but tomorrow I am off to see my mum who lives on the east coast and on Tuesday, my younger sister is coming over from Wales ... so pop back later in the week and (hopefully) I will have prepared the new baby card!
